In 2006-2007 PIER re-launched its approach to business, teaming up with the Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER) at the University of Connecticut, Storrs. PIER held its first business-oriented conference, “Meeting the Global Marketplace: Business Curriculum for the 21st Century,” at the MacMillan Center on May 12, 2007. The program featured professors Susan Rose-Ackerman and Jeffrey Sonnenfeld of Yale, professors Stephen Coelen and Subhash Jain of the University of Connecticut, and Ms. Jayashree Watal of the World Trade Organization. Other events include a “reading circle” for business educators in Connecticut state universities and community colleges.
